Just had a superb holiday in the Canadian Rockies with Dave and his colleague, Ward. Both were excellent guides and walks leaders with a wealth of local knowledge. The pace and difficulty of the walks was well suited to the ability of the group and included the opportunity for the more energetic members to reach higher summits. Although the weather... More
